No yeast? No problem! It is easy to prepare freshly baked dinner rolls with just four simple ingredients. The trick: self-rising flour. You won’t believe that these perfectly risen no-fuss dinner rolls were made without any yeast. This convenience product is made with baking powder and salt already incorporated into the flour. If you don’t have any self-rising flour on hand, you can certainly make your own.

The best part about these no yeast dinner rolls is that they can be made in less than 20 minutes and require only four ingredients. They are the perfect solution at dinnertime because they can be easily whipped up while you are preparing the rest of the meal.

This recipe yields a dozen dinner rolls, but the recipe can easily be halved if you only want to bake six rolls for dinner or doubled when you need more. They taste best when enjoyed warm and fresh from the oven. They are wonderful when served with a homemade herb butter or even with your favorite fruit jam.


  • 2 cups self-rising flour

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 450 F. Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by coating with cooking spray. Set aside.

These dinner rolls are an extra special treat when served with a homemade herb butter, also called compound butter. To make, simply combine softened, unsalted butter with your favorite chopped fresh herbs and spices:

  • Parsley, rosemary, basil, or thyme are all great choices.
  • You can add additional savory elements such as finely chopped green onion or chives as well.
  • Fresh lemon or lime zest also add interest to compound butters.
  • Finally, season the butter with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. After combining your choice of ingredients, refrigerate the butter for a few hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend. Homemade herb butters can then be covered and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
